Producers stated

“‘Jang Ok Jung, Live for Love’ has reinterpreted Jang Hee Bin with a focus on her role as the lady-in-waiting to Queen Dowager Jangnyeol. In modern times, we would compare her role to that of a fashion designer. As Jang Hee Bin is already a character well known to the public through countless interpretations in different movies and dramas, we decided to look at her from a different angle. There will be a fresh change to the story.”

KARA‘s Seungyeon, Lee Sang Yeob, and Hong Soo Hyun were spotted at another script reading session for the upcoming SBS historical drama ‘Jang Ok Jung, Living In Love‘.

Photos from the script reading released on the 22nd prove that the three stars mean serious business. They all look pretty focused on the lines in front of them.

A staff member revealed, “[Everyone was intensely focused on their characters], especially Hong Soo Yeon, Lee Sang Yeob, and Seungyeon who were actually like In Hyun, Dong Pyung, and Sook Bin who appear in ‘Jang Ok Jung, Living In Love’. We anticipate their activities as actors and actresses.”

Some times ago when I saw Seungyeona at the Hanbok's Love Night Fashion in 2011, I really liked her look, & the Hanbok suited her very well.

At that time I told myself, she would look more beautiful as a queen or a Princess in Joseon Dynasty. & I wished her to appear in a historical drama. & I think my wish is granted. Thanks GOD!

But somehow, when I read articles about the drama "Jang Ok-Jung", I feel like regretting wishing that. Especially, that the story title mean live for love... & so there might be some loving scenes :ahh: (I hope & wish not). I believe it will feel weird... I can't imagine thinking about a scene like that! :depressed:

I think "Live for Love" refers more to Jang Ok Jung (Kim Tae Hee's character) which is the lead and the focus of the story..

me too don't want any loving scene included, just knowing Hammie has stepped into some serious drama in my favorite K-Drama genre and wearing a hanbok is perfect enough for me

«who likes hammie in hanbok ?? »

The answer is MEEEEEeeeee!! :inluv:

@ ELJunRa you said earlier «I'm so ready for badass hamster lol ! »

So you consider a "Kissing situation" something bad, & the kisser is a "Badass", isn't it? How come you wish something you consider bad for your favorite Idol?

Maybe he misinterpreted your words Eliza :gemhoho:

Anyways, I am ready for a kissing scene. Well traditional theme drama should not have any intense sexual contents right ? Haha there should only be a small, short and sweet kissing scene in those dynasty era unlike modern days drama where those kissing/sexual contents are a little bit too much..... For idols at least :gemshout:

If you were refering to her character in the drama then sorry if my comment offended you, but then I believe you misused the names, cause Han Seungyeon in the drama "Jang Ok-Jung" plays the role of "Sookbin Choi" (as you wrote in your first post) & not "Hamster" (aka Hammie).

& I didn't said that you said that "kissing is bad", because "kissing" is an action, while I wrote «kissing situation» (it's a little different). & I understand from the word "Badass" WHO MEAN A LOT more than just two words or some "6" characters. & the first half of the word "Badass" is the word "Bad" that is an adjective & it mean: not good ; unpleasant, of poor quality... (of a person) wicked; immoral... etc (sorry, but I don't have too much time at the moment to write all the definitions of the word, so I wrote just few).

& Sorry if you think that I am thinking too much, because I tried to understand the word but until now I couldn't figure out the idea that you expressed in your previous comment.

« When did i wish for something like that » ~ Here it's a little different. Because we (humans) can't know about someone's wish until he confess. But here in your previous comment « i'm so ready for badass hamster lol ! » you have used an expression that the reader (for example me) will understand that you want to see/watch (since it's gonna be a TV drama) the "Badass Hamster", plus you lolled!

Sorry again if you felt offended by my comment cause this was not my intention.

At last, preferably to avoid a war here over this little matter, could you please explain to me what you wanted to say by using the word "Badass"?

Now about the above, all of you wanting to see some kisses: a kiss IS NOT just some lips contact as you think.

Girl Group KARA Member Han Seungyeon expressed her feelings about challenging acting in ‘Jang OK Jung’.

Han Seungyeon at the press conference for SBS new Monday-Tuesday drama 'Jang OK Jung, Live for Love" at March 11th Gyeonggido, Ilsan, Tanhyeon, SBS Production Centre said "This is my first historical drama but i got antagonist character. Today was the first filming".

Han Seungyeon also shows a little bit regret "I will make a full appearance in the latter half but today i recorded the scene where i will make a short appearance in the first episode. From the first time it was decided i will take on 'Jang Ok Jung', this is the shooting that i've been waiting for however actually it was very hard"

She also revealed her desire "I was troubled a lot whether to take 'Jang Ok Jung' or not and it also made me unable to sleep. However I will try my best to become an actress that able to make all the viewers watch me comfortably. I think it will also fun to watch a new side of a bad female character on our drama that is different from the usually portrayed Sukbin or Queen Inhyeon. I will believe in the seniors and will follow them"

In the drama, Han Seungyeon will portray the character Choi Sukbin who is a water maid in the palace and will make a change in the future. It is planned that different from the normal Choi Sukbin character, this time she will be a femme fatale-like character.

Jang Ok Jung will focus on Jang Heebin who used to live a turbulent life in her capacity as a fashion designer. This drama will follow up after the current drama 'Queen of Ambition' and will broadcast on April.

<p>Oh my, hammie in traditional clothing :gemheart: but april is too loooong and gonna be on the second half of the drama :(

Really looking forward for her traditional acting? lol


that's true. she only appears a bit in the first episode. then we have to wait until the second half of the series. so that means really May before she becomes a regular appearance on the show.
